On Wednesday morning, New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested in connection with the murder investigation of 27-year old semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd.

Only a day before, Hernandez’s lawyer told reporters that any news of an impending arrest was simply misinformation and that nothing was going to be happening in the near future.

However, authorities must have found sufficient enough evidence during several searches of his home and nearby area to finally make the decision to bring him in.

At this point in time, we do not know exactly what he has been arrested for and charge with. It was initially believed that he would be detained for obstruction of justice.

Gamedayr will be covering this story as it progresses.
